I hated pink growing up, but my grandmother kept sending me and my sisters all these matching lacy pink dresses...ugh! My mom always had a struggle to get me into them (normally she would bribe me with a new book...lol!)

now, 20 years later, I finally appreciate dresses and even limited amounts of pink - but not that pale stuff - hot pink and deeper pinks...and still no lace

I do the same at our animal shelter book sale/fund raiser twice a year. Last time I never even read the DTB's, that is how much I dislike DTB's. I am in the process of taking 90% of my DTB pile to them for the next sale. There are a very few series I will keep in my collection but not many.

That's right! They're for utilitarian purposes!

Cookbooks are like tools, you can never have too many!

I admit that I have a hard time not buying more DTB cookbooks. They're so pretty and shiiiiiny...

I love cookbooks, I still buy DTBs as well as ecookbooks.

Definitely different strokes.

Princepessa has a twin-frame of shots of her dad and herself. She was about 7 or 8. We were on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland, and I was on the center bench, and they were against the rails. I had real b&W film in the SLR, and took one of him looking at the wake, and one of her looking toward the bow. They didn't know I was taking them; they have the exact same look on their face.

I completely understand, my first daughter I bought everything either yellow or purple and then something happened to me. My brain was damaged or something because now not only do my girls have pink but I have started buying the bright pink cover for my Fire. Just beware, those darn cute little pink outfits are hard to resist!

You will definitely win Father of the Year when you bring Quinn her unicorn!

My niece got back some pictures of her 3 yr old son a few weeks ago. They were done at preschool by a really good photographer. Little nephew is serious look in them. Niece is not happy about him looking so serious. I think they are great. I have one of my son around age four with a look on his face that shows his displeasure. It is a sneer. When we met with his birth mother a few years ago she showed us pictures of his half-brother. There was one that had the SAME expression. I pointed at the picture "That Look! I've seen THAT look. I Know that look!" lol

LOL! I guess growing older has helped with that. =)

My favorite Big Sis, Li'l Bro shots of my kids are where Girl (10 at the time) was holding Boy (9 months then) on her knee, and his is red-faced sca-REAM-ing into her sort of bemused face. She's looking at him like, "Dude. What's your malfunction? Just look at the camera, and she'll give us cookies."

Come to think of it, he still whines about someone taking his picture.
But I don't cry any more when he cries, I just smirk and walk away.

I have pity on crying children in pictures because there exists such pictures of me. Hey, I couldn't help it! I was 3, my brother cried. If he cried, I cried. He was 7. He didn't like having his picture taken. It made him cry. It wasn't even about the silly bow tie he was wearing. It was about getting his picture taken.

I think my mother still has a hard time talking about those pictures. The one time we were able to have a professional picture done and 2 of the 3 children were in tears.

LOL! I can just see it.

I could never get into the whole HK thing - Smurfs, I liked - Hello Kitty needs to go somewhere.

Did you see the one going around with a tiny little girl and even tinier twin baby brothers on either side of her? They're holding the letters, J O Y, and they're all howling mournfully with tearstained faces. Best.Christmas.Picture.EVER.

A friend recently posted a picture on Facebook of her young granddaughter's photography section. There is one picture of the little girl crying. Behind her is a 5 foot tall Hello Kitty Balloon! No wonder the child was crying. That thing was scary!

Awwwwwwww! Since you're not a fan of pink, in what color would you like a baby blanket (I am being serious with this request; I would like to knit you one)?

My nephew's wife had a baby girl in July. The new mother is not a frilly girl. She did go with purple but kept asking people to keep the pink to a minimum...which is difficult these days.
